14 Though these three men [a]Noah, Daniel, and Job were among them, they should deliver but their own souls by their [b]righteousness, saith the Lord God.
15 If I bring noisome beasts into the land and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through, because of beasts,
16 Though these three men were in the midst thereof, As I live, saith the Lord God, they shall save neither sons nor daughters: they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be waste.
Ezekiel 14:14Though Noah and Job were now alive, which in their time were most godly men (for at this time Daniel was in captivity with Ezekiel) and so these three together should pray for this wicked people, yet would I not hear them, read Jer. 15:1.
Ezekiel 14:14Meaning, that a very few (which he calleth the remnant, verse 22) should escape these plagues, whom God hath sanctified and made righteous, so that this righteousness is a sign that they are the Church of God, whom he would preserve for his own sake.
